Las Positas College will expand its Welding program offerings through equipment/supplies procurement and curriculum development (Applied Mathematics for Welding). The equipment procured will increase opportunity for the college to schedule more sections as increased lab space will be made available. The curriculum developed (Applied Mathematics for Welding) will increase student success as the math will be contextualized for optimal student learning. A Mathematics faculty member will be provided release time to develop the math curriculum; and, the Welding faculty will procure necessary equipment, supplies and materials. The Centers of Excellence for Labor Market Research (COE) projects 257 annual job openings for Welders between 2014-2017. The COE reports an average annual total of 60 completers for Welders from 2011-2015. The data yields an under supply of 197 for the occupation.

The welding discipline focused projects will meet all WIOA metrics.
